La Jolla yoga studio hosts dog-friendly benefit


Who better to practice classic yoga poses like upward facing dog and downward facing dog than their four-legged namesakes? During a fundraiser for Canine Companions for Independence at YogaSmoga studio at La Plaza La Jolla Aug. 24, yogis and their dogs were invited to take a pup-friendly class.

Modifying some poses to incorporate holding small dogs, or adjusting a stance to make room for larger ones, instructor Marjorie Nass offered suggestions on how to do yoga at home with your dog with the help of her dog, Dempsey.

YogaSmoga is at 7863 Girard Ave.
